Here’s the dealio: my next (and last, whoop whoop) CPA exam is in just under 2 weeks.
I’m totally not ready for it and that makes me LOL.
You see, I’ve been studying for the exams since March 16, 2009. Yeah, I remember the day. Wouldn’t you remember the day you got locked up without committing a crime?
After almost 15 months of studying, my eyes have started to glaze over with every multiple choice question I skim through and I insanely giggle at every mnemonic that Peter Olinto lovingly tells me to remember. (Peter is my hot, Italian instructor that I spend most mornings with. He may be coming at me from a pre-taped compact disc, but he delivers a Generally Accepted Accounting Principal like nobody’s business.)
So, yep. I’m totally half-assing my studying right now. Wait, scratch that. I’m giving it everything I’ve got, but after over a year of this bullshiz accounting mumbo jumbo, I ain’t got much left.
But I’m not complaining. I got myself into this mess. Sometimes when I’m feeling really low about the whole situation, I’ll try to blame it all on Lloyd. I’ll say he forced me into it against my will. Then, he’ll grab me by my shoulders, give me a couple good shakes, and tell me to “snap out of it, woman, you’re almost done”. (He really doesn’t do that, it just sounded good. In truth, he tells me every day how proud of me he is and how I’m thisclose to being done and getting my life back. He’s awesome.)
But seriously, I’m not complaining. This is my deal. I’ve gotta get this done. I’ve gotta sprint to the finish line. I’ve gotta grab this damned CPA exam by the horns and ride it into the sunset. I’ve gotta analyze each word and each number in each ridiculous multiple choice question and answer A, B, C, or D with reckless abandon. I’ve gotta show this beyotch who’s boss!! And that’s me!
So, that’s what I’ll do. Take this CPA exam and own it. Just like I did with its brothers and sisters.
See you guys on the flip side (in about 2 weeks).
